Mitch Miller – The Yellow Rose Of Texas lyrics

The Yellow Rose of Texas
Mitch Miller

There's a yellow rose in Texas that I am gonna see
Nobody else could miss her not half as much as me
She cried so when I left her it was like it broke her heart
And if I ever find her we never more will part

She's the sweetest little rose bud that Texas ever knew
Her eyes are bright as diamonds they sparkle like the dew
You may talk about your Clementine and sing of Rosa Lee
But the yellow rose of Texas is the only girl for me

Where the Rio Grande is flowing and the starry skies are bright
She walks along the river in the quiet summer night
I know that she remembers when we parted long ago
I promise to return and not to leave her so

She's the sweetest little rose bud that Texas ever knew
Her eyes are bright as diamonds they sparkle like the dew
You may talk about your Clementine and sing of Rosa Lee
But the yellow rose of Texas is the only girl for me

Now I'm gonna find her for my heart is full of woe
We'll do the things together we did so long ago
We'll play the banjo gaily she'll loves me like before
And the yellow rose of Texas shall be mine forever more

She's the sweetest little rose bud that Texas ever knew
Her eyes are bright as diamonds they sparkle like the dew
You may talk about your Clementine and sing of Rosa Lee
But the yellow rose of Texas is the only girl for me

    Curiosity got the best of me to look this song up because of a review written for the mini series "Texas Rising" and the article mentioned "The Yellow Rose of Texas". And then I came here to see what the lyrics have been changed to. Here is what Wikipedia said about the song. I see why it's changed to this version because if someone white sang it today... they would have a lot of people on their case!

    I think it is about a man falling in love with a frog and then he jumps over a log and eats a donut and then explodes in a bubble and then eats a frog with lung cancer later a man finds out that the frog is a cannibal and jumps into the nile river and lives with crocodiles until they betray him and eats him then he moves to texas and eats a yellow rose.

    I enjoy hearing the lyrics and poetry of the song. The song seems so specific in remembering a loved one he knew from before I think its so beautiful to think of the kind hearted girl who he wants to again love. And flowers are the perfect expression of sentimental romance.

    I was born in 1952. I only remeber the corus of this song which my dad used to sing to me. When I look back he was using the words to express his love for his young daughter. The only words of the song that what I can recall is he sang "her eyes they shone like diamonds she, s the only girl for me. I can't believe at 60 I was just browsing for a memory and this came about. What a shame pc has gone mad. I dread to think what will happen when my children look back on their childhood memories.
